Re: Really need help please
Completely with PPs. I just wanted to add that pumping can aggravate OALD as well as the OS. It might help in the short term, but it can really worsen the OALD overall. My letdown was always very forceful, but it was much worse when I was pumping at work than when I was off and not pumping. Nursing relined is really the best thing that you can do to deal with OALD. If you can avoid expressing any milk at all it will ultimately help most with both OS and OALD; but if you have no choice but to express, then hand express a minimal amount of milk.
I also did some very minor block feeding (one breast per feeding, or per every two feedings in the thick of it), but I didn't need to get to aggressive with it. The very frequent nursing actually helps a lot with the OALD too, so don't try to discourage that.
All of this gets better with time as your baby grows. My milk old spray across the room for 15 months, but my baby ony had trouble with it for the first few months.
